Sauteed Kohlrabi

So after last week's CSA pickup, I'm sure most people were wondering...what is this vegetable? Well, it's a German turnip and tastes similar to cabbage, but can be cooked like potatoes!

This recipe makes a great side dish or can be eaten instead of homefries for breakfast.

1 Kohlrabi bulb
1/2 small onion (chopped)
1 garlic clove
1 tsp Celtic Sea Salt
Pepper to taste
Dash of Paprika
1 tbsp Olive oil

Cut off the leaves on the kohlrabi. Trim off the bottom of the bulb slightly. Cut into 2 inch cubes if strong enough. (If cannot cut it-boil entire bulb and then chop later). Put kohlrabi in water and boil for 20-30 min until soft. Sautee chopped onions and garlic in olive oil until softened. Chop cooked kohlrabi into small bite-sized chunks, then add to the pan. Add sea salt, pepper, paprika to taste. Sautee until slightly browned. Serve warm.

Alternative- Kohlrabi mash:
After kohrabi and onion/garlic mixture is sauteed, put in blender and puree with 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk. Serve as a side dish.
